Vancouver Canucks forward Alexander Burmistrov will retire from the NHL, agent Dan Milstein announced Sunday.

Burmistrov, just 26, has played 24 games with the Canucks this season. An official announcement is expected in the coming days.

After recording 65 points in 62 games with the OHL's Barrie Colts, Burmistrov was drafted eighth overall to the Atlanta Thrashers in 2010. Following the franchise's relocation to Winnipeg, Burmistrov suited up with the Jets before a two-year stint in the KHL from 2013-15.

He found a spot back with the Jets for parts of two seasons before stops in Arizona and, most recently, Vancouver. Overall, Burmistrov finishes his NHL career with 348 games played and 101 points.
